While some people enjoy the perpetual flicker of a flat screen television, others would rather spend their leisure time in conversation with friends and family. For a more social space, it is a good idea to place your furniture with people as your focal point, i.e. in a circle or parallel setup where everyone can see each other. Shea Homes, an online furnishing resource adds, “Make your guests as comfortable as possible by allowing them to sit in a seat where their backs are not facing an open space or door. Research has shown that this position can help lower blood pressure and make people feel more at ease.”
Choosing living room furniture based on what you need from it. How big is your layout? Will large-scale furniture or smaller designs best suit your space? Determine how you will use your family room to decide what styles you need. Next, decide on the sofa type you want. A quality sofa is the foundation of every great family room. Consider seat height and cushion softness and depth. Take size into consideration: a compact loveseat for small living rooms and a full-sized or sectional sofa for big spaces. If you frequently entertain guests, consider a sleeper sofa. Do not forget to accent with living room chairs or a daybed. Complete your living room furniture collection with ottomans and side tables.
Many times, living spaces become somewhat of a "catch all" for belongings, toys, and other random things. By providing a place for some of these items to be stored, you can help to alleviate some of the eye-sore factor that comes with a cluttered mess. If you have wall space, consider adding a bookshelf for storage. You can use the lower shelves for larger items contained in baskets or bins and the higher shelves can be reserved for lighter items like books or accent decor. You can also utilize floor space by selecting a coffee table that doubles as a storage ottoman, which can be a home to a wide variety of random items.
